On the Webcast Extra: Politics is at its most interesting when politicians color outside the lines. GOP candidates Rick Perry and Herman Cain loosen up with humor while hitting the campaign trail. And, who are the Koch brothers? Plus, economic optimists are mostly in the upper middle class group and the pessimists are in the working middle classes. How will Obama avoid alienating either group?
